North rescued hj partner with a bid of 2-Spadoa, but South, fearful that North would have difficulty getting Into tho South hand, decided to try 3-Hcarts, «von though he knew West meant tho 3oubl« at the two level ca a penalty double. West, of course, doubled this North again bid hi* spades, which East doubled, and South went to 4-Hearts, which was again doubled.

She related the life of Saul, who later became Paaul, and then presented the Jesus that Paul preached. "It seems strange today to realize that the time was that men and \vomcn ucre willing to be thrown into the lion's den, beheaded and suffer oil ma ncr ol persecution for the Lord Jesus Christ s sake," said the youthful evangelist, "Nowadays a little inclement weather keeps some away from tho church. 'In the -words of God to Ananias, ·Behold, he prayeth,' we find the key to Paul's subsequent life. 'And straightway he preached Jesus as the Son of God.' 1 find that the Jesus that Paul pieached Is a very different Jesus than the Jesus who Is being discussed in many circles today. Paul preached a prc-existcnt Jesus. One whom he said was before the foundations of the world; a divine Jesus, a humiliated Jesus; a crucified Jesus a Jesus who takes away and a coming Jesus" When the girl preacher extended the invitation to those who wished to acknowledge their acceptance o: Christ as a personal Saviour to mcc her at tho altar, men, women anc young people from all parts of the crowded church came forward.

S E A T I N G OF MILTON PROTESTED .abor Objects to New Jersey Senate Appointee. :HARGES VIOLATION OF ELECT I ON .LAWS BULLETIN WASHINGTON, Jan 24.-Senator John Milton, D, N. J, took the oath of ofllcc in the Senate today shortly after Labor's Non-Partisan League filed a petition charging the new member was unfit for a seat and asking investigation of charges of New Jersey election frauds The petition was referred to the Senate Elections Committee. WASHINGTON, Jan. 24.--Labor's Non-Partisan League filed a formal complaint with the Senate today protesting the seating of John Milton of New Jersey, and requesting an inquiry into charges of "illegal and corrupt' election tactics in Jersey City. I The attempt to prevent seating of Milton, appointed to tho scat vacated by Governor A. Harry Moore, was based on a long petition filed with Vice-Prcsldcnt John Nance Garner by E L Oliver, executive vice-president, ond Carl Holderman, New Jeisey chairman of the league The petition charged that Milton and Mayor Frank Hague of Jersey City had "trampled upon civil and constitutional liberties and practiced all the known devices for violating election laws" It pointed out that the State Assembly had ordered an investigation of the election which returned Moore to the governorship and said it warranted "an investigation by the Senate Into the fitness of John Milton to hold a Senate seat, since his appointment to this office is a result of this election." A majority vote of the Senate will decide--probably later this week-whether tho petition will be shelved, referred to the elections committee headed by Senator Walter F. George, Democrat, Georgia, or ignored Generally it was believed no inquiry would be ordered although some senator? believed the question might be thrtshcd out before the committee. Milton, scheduled to appear in the Senate uith Moore at noon to take the oath, may be asked to stand aside in event any senators desire an investigation. He probably will be sworn in, however, because the action to unseat him could procccc uncfTcctcd. "Medicine Man" Arrested. John Tomcy was arrested at Wcs! Brownsville on nn Information charging him with unlawful practice of medicine among foreigner!, and In default of $1,000 bond was ordcrec jailed for his appearance in court Tomcy gave his address as Greensburg where he had been operating a "medicine business" since 1918.
